My 89 2.3 finally died with 431K miles. So I found this 93 in excelent shape with less than half as many miles as the 89.

Here is how it sits as of now.

Here it is the day I brought it home

The color is actually green, but for some reason it turned out blue in the pictures.

This is the only spot that has rust. Not bad for a 93

I will be swaping all the SAS parts from the 89 to this one. I will take alot of pictures along the way.

Here is how it looks as of 9/3/11

I'm glad this isn't what i thought it was when i saw the title.....

Had some brake problems.

Along with a broken adjuster cable, dont have a pic of it though.
Here is all the parts that will be going into it. Everything is striped from the 89.

Should be able to start it in a few weeks. Before I do, I will throw some paint on everything to keep from rusting anymore.

Now you have to re-gear the 8.8 to match the D30.

I say are you going to build a different track bar mount or still use the one you have, I wonder why it looks just like mine, which I need to do the mods that you did to get it to quit flexing.

Yeah, it will need regeared. I have an uncle that works at National Drivetrain in Chicago. He is shipping my the 8.8 r&p should have it by end of the week.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:35 PM.
